[texts]ERIC ED305525: Caregiving as a Family Network Event. - ERIC
Caregiving studies often focus on the impaired elder who is the care receiver and the one family member who is perceived as the primary caregiver. Such studies fail to consider all members of the family, whether or not they are involved in providing care. This study was conducted to explore the effects of an elder's health-related dependency on the family network through the eyes of family members other than and including the primary caregiver and care receiver...

[texts]ERIC ED327347: Appalachian Mental Health. - ERIC
In this book, 17 psychologists, anthropologists, social workers and others explore important theoretical and applied issues concerning the mental health of Appalachian people.

This cultural context has implications for development of mental health problems and coping skills, and for delivery of mental health services...

[texts]ERIC ED354059: "Thoughts" about Preserving and Empowering Families through Co-Parenting Partnerships. - ERIC
In the traditional family preservation model, a family's integrity is preserved by keeping children in the care of their immediate or extended families. Family reunification has involved safely returning children to the custody of their families after a period of foster care. However, families are not preserved solely by family members maintaining close physical proximity to their members. Most families develop strong emotional and kinship bonds that perpetuate the history and culture of the fam...

[texts]ERIC ED346989: Conceptualising Family Life and Family Policies. - ERIC
The United Nations International Year of the Family 1994 will give policymakers the opportunity to bring together threads of social life that have previously been treated separately. The danger in talking about the concept of "the family" lies both in its abstractness and in its emotional, religious, and political overtones. To avoid this definitional quicksand, people must be reminded that every individual has a family (of origin at least); that the family changes throughout the course of an in...

Empirical findings have supported an inverse relationship between closeness to extended family and friends versus spouse. The three foregoing interpersonal relationships in terms of affective quality, direction and dominance were investigated, using an objective test as well as the TAT.

[texts]ERIC ED353051: Building on People's Strengths: The Case for Contextual Child Development. Studies and Evaluation Papers 5. - ERIC
It is often the case that lip service is paid to the strength of indigenous culture while the implications of indigenous peoples' strengths are disregarded in actual project design. This paper shows that indigenous peoples and societies are able to cope with an extraordinary number of permutations, and that their coping mechanisms are both infinitely resilient and enormously adaptable. The most obvious strength and resource of African children is the extended family...
